On meeting Simone on arrival we were quickly shown to Tiglio which was our home for the week. We were very pleased with our little house which has been very tastefully restored. Lovely brick arches and stone walls. Great patio area just off the kitchen/living room & a downstairs toilet and shower room. Two adequate double bedrooms ( 1 can be made into a twin) & another bathroom up stairs. A gift of his father's wine was on the table on arrival.
Outside the gardens are lovely and constantly attended to. The pool is lovely and there is plenty
of sunloungers, deckchairs & tables with chairs also a shower is also beside the pool with a security gate for children.
It is in a lovely rural area with lovely countryside views. a pizzeria is with in walking distance with the small town of Montaoine about 5-10 mins drive which has a good selection supermarkets etc. Plenty of restaurants dotted round the towns and the countryside. It is also very central for visiting Pisa, Florence and the many attractions.
The other treasure at Casa Grimaldi is Simone. He was so helpful nothing was too much bother to him. He was always there to provide information about places we wanted to visit. He even recommended for us to travel to Florence by train rather than car & also got train times, fares etc. He was also great at keeping us right with the recycling as there were so many different bins. He also supplied us with a BBQ and had it cleaned beforehand.
Finally he went out of his way to get us sorted out to watch the Pro 12 Rugby for which we are very grateful!
His parents were also very helpful even though they had limited English.
I would recommended this to anyone and although we were just adult family members it would also be ideal possibly for families with younger children.
